advanced commands

Here is a command I have just seen. Command takes you to flow daemon and allows several advanced troubleshooting options. It is good to look deeply.

root@host>start shell pfe network fwdd

BSD platform (OCTEON processor, 136MB memory, 1024KB flash)

FLOWD_OCTEON(host vty)#

  1. Had a strange issue on 11.2 where a VPN tunnel interface would not pass traffic despite everything configured properly and the tunnel was showing it was up and connected. The tech ran a similar command:

    run start shell
    vty fwdd
    show usp ips sa

    He looked for anything that wasn’t bound to a st0.x interface (which was the problematic tunnel). His fix was just removing the tunnel interface out of the config, commit full, then adding it back in and commit full. Strange but it worked. Just another advanced troubleshooting tip I thought I might add.
